Lighten Up, Y’all – Classic Southern Recipes

I’m still getting used to the cooking styles and tastes that come from the Southern States.  Most things I have loved but some things have just blown my mind because I just never seen them before.  When this Lighten Up, Y’all cookbook by Virginia Wells became available for review on Blogging For Books, I snapped it up quickly!

First 5 Tried & Tested

I wanted to share 5 recipes with you that we have tried over the last couple of weeks.  After starting a ‘meal ideas’ board on Pinterest I thought that I had better start working through some of them.

We quite like trying new things but both Adam and I can be a little fussy.  He doesn’t really like any vegetables apart from carrots and peas.  I can’t eat prawns or a lot of peppers because it upsets my tummy!  Recently we have just been recycling the same recipes over and over because we like them.  But, we had decided that we wanted a bit more variety.

These are the ones that we have tried, loved and will be eating again!  They all made enough portions for 2-3 meals so we still have some left to eat in our freezer.

I would love to know if you have tried these already or are going to try them.
